Do you already have your Gucci Princetown Leather Slipper? On the waitlist for the Horsebit Slipper? Me neither. I've seen, and am still seeing, the unisex Leather Slipper everywhere in the fashion world. It seems to be a go to for stylists, bloggers and street stars, yet I cannot find it in me to hand over $995 for house slippers.
Even if they are lined with kangaroo fur. We've seen the smoking slipper (those velvet covered loafers that made their way out of the house and onto the streets some time ago) give way to the Celine fur lined Birkenstocks back in 2013.
It was only a matter of time until a more refined take came along. Who better than Gucci to take up the reins and give us a pair that are perfectly luxe and everyday.
However I believe they've outdone themselves with the long haired goat version, the $1,800 Horsebit Slipper. I'm sure they are all insanely warm and cozy and were I to try them on, I might be tempted; but I'm not one for real fur except for hand-me-down pair from my grandmother. And so, they will remain a furry phenomenon to be witnessed.
